This prospective randomized study evaluates the nephroprotective effects of exogenous nitric oxide delivered to the extracorporeal circulation circuit during cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass.
Study aim : To compare a novel strategy of lesion preparation with noncompliant balloons before implantation of BVS. Hypothesis: Predilatation with non-compliant balloons could facilitate optimal deployment of BVS. By achieving good scaffold apposition a need for post-dilatation could be significantly reduced. This is expected to result in better short- and long-term outcomes.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of coronary stenting with the various types of drug-eluting stents (DES) and to determine clinical device and procedural success during commercial use of DES in the real world. The investigators will compare EES (Xience V/Promus and Xience Prime), SES (Cypher), ZES (Resolute Integrity, Endeavor Resolute, Endeavor), and BES (Biomatrix, Biomatrix Flex, and Nobori).
This prospective randomized study elucidates the effects of exogenous nitric oxide delivered to the extracorporeal circulation circuit for cardioprotection against ischemia-reperfusion injury during coronary artery bypass graft surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass.
The SYNTAX-score has been proposed as a tool for risk stratification and guiding revascularization therapy in patients with complex coronary artery disease. There are limited data on the prognostic value of the SYNTAX-score among elderly patients. Aim of this study was to investigate whether age modifies the impact of the SYNTAX-score on all-cause mortality at 2 years after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
The investigators present an interesting co-incidence of Gated wall abnormality in the inferolateral wall in normal sestamibi myocardial perfusion images with J wave in the inferior derivations of the ECG in a patient. The subsequent coronary angiography demonstrated 80% mid right coronary artery (RCA) stenosis, which was intervened with a drug-eluting stent. The investigators conclude that even though the myocardial perfusion is normal, the association of gated wall abnormality with J wave presentation within the same location should be further evaluated.
Anabolic androgenic steroids (AASs) have been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The illicit use of these substances also leads to a remarkable decrease in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) plasma concentration, which could be a key factor in the atherosclerotic process. The investigators tested the functionality of HDL by cholesterol efflux and antioxidant capacity and its association with CAD in young men.
To compare the immediate and long-term clinical outcomes between Balloon-Stent Kissing Technique (BSKT) and Jailed Wire Technique (JWT) for the interventional treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions.
In this study, the relative bioavailability of different formulations of AZD5718 will be determined in order to compare it with the formulation used in a previous Phase 2a study and confirm appropriate drug exposure. This study consist of 2 parts. In Part 1, 5 different formulations of AZD5718 would be provided to the participant in fasting condition in a randomized order. After evaluation of Part 1 a single formulation would be selected for dosing in fed condition in Part 2. Each participant will be involved in the study for approximately 5 to 6 weeks. Fourteen participants will be randomized to ensure at least 10 evaluable participants at the end of the last treatment period.
Recently, researchers have paid attention to the development of new products such as supplements food and nutraceuticals for identify and develop integrative therapies to be used in cardiovascular disease. As suggested by literature, some nutritional components (creatine, ribose) can enhance the fundamental energy levels for the functioning of the heart muscle and can enhance the body's antioxidant capacity through the reduction in free radicals activity, one of the main pathogenic mechanisms of these diseases. In this context, the investigators have developed a research with the principal purpose to establish whether a supplement of creatine and ribose can improve the total work capacity during exercise in a population of patients with known ischemic heart disease.
